Kathmandu, Sep 28 (UNI) The CPN-Maoists, along with two other Communist parties, today registered a motion demanding the special session of the Interim Parliament at Prime Minister's office for abolishing the institution of monarchy before the Constituent Assembly elections.

The Maoists, along with CPN (Ekikrit) and CPN (Samyukta), demanded the institution of monarchy to be abolished before the elections, slated for November 22.

''We have done it to ensure declaration of republic from interim Parliament and ensure all out proportional representation,'' Maoist leader Krishna Bahadur Mahara told reporters after registering the document at Prime Minister's office.

In Nepalese interim Constitution, signature of 83 MPs is needed to call for the special session of Parliament.

Meanwhile, the meeting between top leaders of seven political parties ended without any conclusion after the Maoists stuck to their demand for proportional system for CA polls.

The seven parties had yesterday agreed to resume the meeting today. Though informal discussions were held, no formal meeting could be held due to Maoist stance on fully proportional representation system for the polls. A new date for the meeting was also not fixed.
